A 21-year-old sales representative, Aminat Oluwole, on Friday appeared in a Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos State for allegedly stealing N223,000 belonging to MultiChoice.
The police charged Oluwole, whose address was not provided, with two counts fraudulent conversation of money and theft.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.
